Volledige vakbeschrijvingThis course aims to provide an introduction into the study of a contemporary “area”, i.e. country, of the students’ own choice. It focuses upon both domestic and international aspects relative to a country’s political, social and cultural life and/or its involvement with other countries or international actors such as the European Union. It does so by means of self-directed research carried out by students in close cooperation with a tutor who guides his or her students through the complete research process. A series of lectures which accompanies this course present the theoretical tools and concepts such as ‘Europeanisation’, which should guide the students’ own research.
Doelstellingen van dit vakAt the end of this course, the students have: • Acquired a good knowledge of the “area”, i.e. country, of their choice; • Improved their research skills (define and delineate research topic; formulate research questions; carry out the actual research; reflect upon the data in the light of theoretical perspectives; etc.)
